Phylogenetic conservatism in skulls and evolutionary lability in limbs - Morphological evolution across an ancient frog radiation is shaped by diet, locomotion and burrowing

Vidal-Garcia, Marta; Keogh, J. Scott

Description

Background Quantifying morphological diversity across taxa can provide valuable insight into evolutionary processes, yet its complexities can make it difficult to identify appropriate units for evaluation. One of the challenges in this field is identifying the processes that drive morphological evolution, especially when accounting for shape diversification across multiple structures. Differential levels of co-varying phenotypic diversification can conceal selective pressures on traits due to...[Show more]
